The U.S. Forest Service says it is planning to construct a campground and trail in the Sheyenne National Grasslands, in southeast North Dakota.
The agency says the Jorgen's Hollow project will be done in the northeast corner of the grasslands.
The agency says the grasslands comprise more than 70,000 acres in Ransom County, and they are the only remaining tallgrass prairie in public ownership in the United States.

Twisted Oak Campground in Argyle State Park west of Macomb will remain open to the public throughout the reconstruction project for the scenic road that circles the park, but the Twin Oaks and Big Oaks campgrounds will be closed indefinitely to the public due to high volumes of large truck traffic and hazardous situations.
From the Hays Free Press:
A Kyle, Texas, woman has been charged with murder after she brandished a knife in a quarrel over missing medication and fatally stabbed a man at a Kyle campground, police say.
Brenda Morgan, 54, was originally arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and released the next day on bond. Also that day, the victim, Donald Blaha, 50, died from a stab wound in the left side of his chest, according to an arrest affidavit filed Feb. 16.
The attack occurred at the Plum Creek Campground.
From The Franklin Sun:
The idea of an RV park in Winnsboro's Industrial Park in North Winnsboro appears to still be on hold as the city council delayed an approval of certification last week.
Concerns addressed by Northeast Louisiana Economic Alliance CEO Tana Trichel at the monthly meeting are forcing council members to examine certain aspects of the park's inner makeup before making a permanent decision.
